Gertrude Käsebier's portrait of Miss Minnie Ashley was one of a set of six photogravures published by Alfred Stieglitz in the magazine, Camera Work in 1905. Stieglitz praised Käsebier as 'the leading portrait photographer' in America and marvelled the artistic feeling and harmony of her broad pictures. He even went as far as saying that 'their strength never betrays a woman'.

Glossary Open


A photographic negative is transferred onto a copper plate, which can then be manipulated like an etching. It allows for creative working and results in a wide range of tones in the finished work.
